New executive order seeks to force LGBT ideology on a nation that doesn’t want it
Today, President Biden issued a sweeping executive order during “Pride Month” that is a direct attack on what you—and so many others across the states—have been doing to push back against his woke agenda and to protect children.
The executive order seeks to use the full power of the federal government to stop the movement to save girls’ sports, keep parents in the dark about what’s happening in their children’s classroom, and force gender “transitions” on children as a form of “healthcare.”
In response, Family Policy Alliance released an official statement to the media, as well as a joint statement with our friends from Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF). WoLF is an organization of self-described “radical feminists.” We may disagree on many issues, but we agree that gender ideology and this sweeping executive order are extremely dangerous—particularly for women and children.
Tune in to hear from Family Policy Alliance’s President & CEO, Craig DeRoche, and WoLF’s Executive Director, Mahri Irvine, LIVE about the President’s executive order and our response TONIGHT at 7:30PM ET.
Here is the statement we released today to the media in response to the President’s Executive Order:
Statement from Craig DeRoche, CEO and President of Family Policy Alliance:
“Today, President Biden has identified himself as an actual threat to democracy and to families, by showing his willingness to issue a federal takeover of decisions that belong to parents, schools, and health care professionals – all in a single executive order.
“President Biden promised to enact the sweeping Equality Act, which seeks to redefine sex across federal law. That bill has failed multiple times in Congress. Not only that, but Americans across the nation are moving in the opposite direction.
“That reality is the clear impetus for today’s executive order. The President is going after the states and the American people who are pushing back against his woke agenda. The accompanying fact sheet for the order alluded to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, Help Not Harm laws that protect minors from transgender interventions, and the Save Girls’ Sports laws that now protect female athletes in eighteen states.
“As for the people leading those policies? We’re not intimidated. We know that the alliance of state family policy councils behind many of these policies is standing strong, and that the movement’s momentum is greater than ever. Look no further than the sweeping effort to Save Girls’ Sports. In 2020, one state had such a law. Last year, 9 states had Save Girls’ Sports laws. This year, that number has doubled to eighteen.
“Today, the President alienated himself from his fellow Americans and called them ‘bullies’ to underscore the point. He’s drawn clear battle lines, and we proudly stand on the side of the states leading the movement to protect women and children, save girls sports, and ensure parents know what’s happening in their child’s kindergarten classroom.
“Today, Biden has accomplished little more than show how out of touch he is with millions of Americans and add fuel to the fire to ensure that kids and their families are protected across the country.”
